After a week of tacos and seafood, we stopped here for roast beef and turkey panini's and they ended up being one of my two favorite meals of the entire trip to Mexico. The staff was great, very committed to making a sandwich you will like. The iced coffee was on point and the location was adorable. We will absolutely... More

I was looking for some place to take breakfast and the places around looked to me like an improvised version of a night bar trying to extend services....This usually doesn't work. But then i see this small shop a little bit hidden, two streets down from the freeway. I was amazed by the variety of sandwiches/paninis and all of them... More

I think this place looks good for the sandwiches but not for the salads. For the salads they save on ingredients, basically they serve loads of greens but not much of the other good stuff- there they are quite tight. Therefore, i don't think the salad is worth your money. I would rather get a sandwich or the shakes. My... More

Pick on of the great options on the menu or create your own from an amazing selection of imported meats and cheeses. For the more health concious you can... More

Really tasty sandwiches with fresh and finest products, quality food! Milkshakes are delicious. Service also is really good, we came here twice and really recommend it! Around 100 pesos for a sandwich, definitely worth it!

The Milano on focaccia is seriously amazing. If you're in Tulum make sure to check this place out. The fresh juices and coffees are great. The best place I've been in Tulum.

Amazing salads and sandwiches. Best cheese selection I've seen in Yucatán, lovely courtyard setting and a quiet spot to spend some time in. Gluten free options would be a great addition, even if it's just a potato or rice dish to accompany the salads.
